What seems to be an ordinary alarm clock to us, holds a history and value that would certainly astonish us in the first place. It is a rare and sought after piece known as the craftsmanship of the Black Forest (German) clockmakers of the mid-17th century. Wehrle clocks are known world over for their fine quality musical clocks. Emilian Wehrle was a famous clock maker, whose father started the clock making business on a small scale in 1842.
It is known that he established the Wehrle firm and never manufactured clocks in large quantities as other Black Forest clockmakers, he just made enough clocks for the customers who could actually afford them. These period clocks were high quality and expensive and therefore, considered to be a rarity these days. Some of these special clocks are present in the German Clock Museum. The company exists till date but has started producing technical precision parts for water meter industry.
This particular item is the Wehrle three-in-one Sapphire Jeweled shockproof clock. It was a rust, dust and shock proof strike and alarm clock, black in color and made of chrome. The digits in the dial and needle also had a ‘nite-glo’ feature which enabled one to see the time in the dark. It had a super loud alarm which could be snoozed to be repeated. The clock is present in a very good condition, with no cracks on the glass and only slight scratches on the front and body.
Place this clock on your bedside, mantel piece or shelf at your home, office or shop and you will certainly attract the attention of many people who would recall the memories to the sound of its alarm!
